My mother has a home that was built around 1890. The basement is concrete mortar or some sort.
All of the walls leak somewhat. You can see where the water seeps through.
The basement walls are also peeling and if you brush up against it with your hand, mortar dusts off onto the floor.
On one wall, there is structural damage. The wall is crumbling. It is a 4 ft by 4 ft area. The wall has completely come down, exposing red mud/earth. When Isabel hit, water was just pouring in through the rivulets in the mud.
We are wanting to make the basement sturdy and water tight.
What can be done?
